Is english even your first language? Of course we're all speaking english here, but this is the internet - so there's no way to tell. It kind of got me thinking when occasionally Vincent (Magic Fantastic) writes in French, and that's actually his first language. I remember a while ago we had a guy from Romania on this site and his english wasn't very good - but it drew my attention because he tried to express familiar feelings and problems in English, a language that wasn't his own. It wouldn't surprise me if many of you were fluent in other languages - I find them so fascinating, the way it directs but also limits the way we think and feel.
I'm not sure where this is all going, but out of curiosity, and perhaps also to get to know each other better (in a way that isn't normally portrayed in our journals)
What languages can you speak? Or want to learn to speak? Where are you from and where do you live? Do you want to move somewhere else? What's your cultural background? Do you think it has affected you as a person?
